[RC5-PROXYPER] personal proxy stopped working on WinNT thru firewall

Greetings!

I've been using a personal proxy running on my desktop
machine to feed blocks of keys to a number of other
machines that are not on the main network.  The proxy
is v277 running on WinNT.  It only seemed to be able to
connect to rc5warped.ml.org, but that was working fine.

rc5warped.ml.org now appears to be offline, and I can't
send or receive any more key blocks.  When I try other
servers, I either get disconnected immediately:

or I receive the server's proxy message and then get
disconnected: (this is using rc5.best.net)

I am also running a standard Win32 GUI client on the same
machine as the personal proxy, and it is still working fine.
There appears to be some slight difference in the communication
protocols between the client and the proxy which is causing
the proxy to fail.

Anyone have any insight on this?  I'd like to get all of the
other clients back online but I have no other easy way to do it.
